    Question Disseminable

    Is "disseminable" a word? I can't find it in any dictionary, but it seems to be used a lot online by reputable sources.

    Google

    Re: Disseminable

    It doesn't occur in the BNC or COCA, which suggests it's not widely used. The Google search suggests it's a fairly new word; if it spreads, it may start appearing in dictionaries.
